Corporate Volunteering: Helping Employees Give Back
Particularly in these times, where the news is dominated by troubling stories, there is perhaps no better way to enhance your image and stand out from the pack than by sharing uplifting stories that demonstrate your company’s social responsibility.
Volunteer engagements enable your employees to go out in the community, represent your brand, build relationships, and strengthen communities by sharing their skills and passions. Employee volunteerism can benefit morale, the local community, and the bottom line. It’s an obvious, yet often overlooked aspect of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). This series will take a look at the business case for building a robust employee volunteer program. We’ll look at specific company case studies as well as best practices and tips for implementing and running your own program.
We’ve partnered with MicroEdge, the leading provider of software and services to the giving community worldwide, to deliver this series.
